Big Ben liked what he saw…

Great showing by the Steelers tonight! All 3 QBs looking good! Well done guys, fun to watch! — Ben.

Now #7 may not have been on the field for the first 2022 pre-season game, but he was definitely in the hearts of Steelers Nation:

“Yes fun to watch but missing you out there!” — Kim Grubb.

“Whoever the starting QB will be has very large shoes to fill. Miss you Ben but wishing all the QB the best!” — Chris Turner.

“Great game for sure! But still so different not seeing my QB out there! #7 We will NEVER forget you!!” — Lynn Dailey.

“It was a great game but Big Ben it just ain’t the same without you out there.” — Billie Rogers.

“Fun to watch…but you will always be my number 1 QB! Thanks for all the wonderful years! Miss you Ben! — Yvonne Peifer.

“Not the same without you Big Ben…miss you terribly! You’ll always be my #1 QB love ya ” — Kimberly Brown.

“Sometimes i think ‘i just dont know if i can do this without Ben’. It’s gonna be so hard to watch and BEN not be on the field. They say change is good but not sure about this one…all good things must come to an end. . Love ya BEN!! GO STEELERS! — Michelle Conley-Bruner.

“Missing you Ben. The QBs have got to prove a lot to this 47 year Steeler fan. Nice start tonight of doing that. Franchise QBs like You and Terry are hard to replace. Continue to enjoy retirement and your family. God bless and GoSteelers. — Mike Williams.

“Ugh…We were at the game and just wasn’t the same, definitely like Pickett […]

It’s another Throwback Thursday

…and we’re going way back to 2015 when Benjamin Jr., even at the tender age of 2-years old – while rockin’ a mighty nice milk mustache – knew that the long, hot month of August has always been considered the “Dog” days of summer (just listen, you’ll hear it!👂).

And a hardy round of applause from Baby Baylee confirms that she knew it as well!! 👏

August is almost gone – which means FOOTBALL SEASON IS ALMOST HERE!!! Now that’s something to SING about! 🎵🎤🎶

Bring on Steelers Football! #HereWeGo

Big Ben – back in the day

This is a Findlay High School picture we took. I was the Army High School Recruiter at the time. Ben (wearing #7, of course) had the opportunity to drive that HUMMER around the field…until Coach Hite came out and raised H***!! Lol! — Ed Treft.

Ed, thank you so much for sharing this great photo with us!!

“Forget about the curve ball, Ricky. Give him the heater!”

Er….I mean, Benny!!

Big Ben was the man on the mound Friday night at PNC Park to throw out the first pitch for the Pirates’ YINZERPALOOZA NIGHT:

Ben brought his own team with him!

Loosening up that throwing shoulder…

Here’s the wind-up….

And the pitch….

Can we see that throw again from another angle?

Ben and his team with Pirates pitcher (and his catcher), David Bednar.

Hmmmm, MLB was watching…perhaps even a scout or two in the audience?

Post-pitch interview with the Ace on the Mound tonight:

Thank you, Pittsburgh Pirates!!

Ben on DVE this morning

Ben was a guest during the DVE Morning Show with Randy Baumann, and used part of his call-in interview to clarify his comments to Ron Cook during that interview from July 22nd.

On Cam Heyward’s recent comments on his podcast:

Cam is right; I probably should have been more detailed and specific in what I said. I maybe should have clarified that more, that’s my bad. I was asked what the difference in the league is now from when I first got in, even when Cam first got in, the mentality of the players, the toughness. Cam is entitled to be upset, but he and I have had conversations. I know he knows what I’m talking about. It’s not like it’s new to Cam. The majority of guys on that team are very team-first guys. I get Cam supporting his teammates. I wasn’t trying to bash anybody specifically. I was making a broadstroke judgement.

One of the biggest differences in the game [now] is the toughness…There are no more two-a-days. They are trying to make the game safer, I get it. I think it’s smart. I just think the difference is from when I first came in until now is you see guys spending much more time in the training room. Where guys would tape it up and go, guys still do that to a certain extent, but it’s differences in the game.

More from his Q&A with the Morning Show:

On JuJu Smith-Schuster –

I love that guy! Great teammate, a guy who would do anything for his team, anything for the city, the Steelers. He played through so much injury, so much pain. I loved him. I know there are people who don’t know what to think and don’t like the other stuff he did, but when it came to the team. Yes, he did stuff off the field, but when it came time for football it did not get in the way. He gave every single ounce of his body, his heart and his soul to us, so I never, ever had a problem with JuJu – ever.

On Najee Harris –

Naj is a good football player and he’s going to get better, and he’s going to probably carry the load this year. He’s capable of doing that. He’s a really, really good football player. I see him, I don’t wanna […]
